WhatsApp Latest Update: Messenger Room Shortcut Coming to the App
Another update is available for the popular messaging app, WhatsApp but this time it is for the web version of WhatsApp.
The updated version 2.2019.6, allows users to connect with their friends and family via Messenger Rooms from their personal computers and laptops.
You’ll recall that Last month, Facebook announced that its Messenger Rooms feature would be coming to WhatsApp soon. Soon after, the feature was spotted on the beta version of the company’s Android app.
And now, according to popular WhatsApp leaker WABetainfo, that Messenger Rooms for WhatsApp will soon be available on WhatsApp Web.
To give you some insight about Messenger Rooms, it is essentially a new video group chat feature for Facebook Messenger wherein users can chat with other users directly over WhatsApp, Portal, or Instagram without leaving those apps.
From the report, WhatsApp is working to add Messenger Rooms Shortcuts in the 2.2019.6 Web update. Though it isn’t rolled out yet, but when it rolled out, it will be visible in the action list as seen below;
The user will be able to create Rooms, in which WhatsApp will ask if you wish to be redirected to Messenger.
Once launched, it will be available in the future for iOS, Android, and, obviously, WhatsApp Web.
As far as the main app is concerned, WhatsApp is planning to ship Messenger Rooms as a separate feature in its app. The feature is expected to be available as a separate icon beside the Documents and Gallery options.
